The gang is actually getting back together for a reunion! I KNOW! (In Monica’s voice)
According to Variety, ‘Friends: The Reunion’ will now debut on the one-year anniversary of the launch of HBO Max and exactly one year after it was originally supposed to air. However, the special was delayed multiple times due to the production shutdown caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. It was originally set to film in February 2020 but was only able to begin filming in April.
